"In the City" is a song performed by Troy Iwata & Nikhil Saboo from The Boy Who Danced on Air the Musical.

[Paiman]
I had asked for a new life
I could see it when I pray
We both wanted a new life
Now freedom might not be so far away
Like some great surprise
That’s sent from the skies
If I close my eyes
I can see it

I could get a job
Doesn’t matter what
There are tons of shops
So much there to do
I could choose
I could get a place
He could live nearby
When I look outside
I might catch his glance
Perfect views
I’ll have a wonderful life
Where I can dance at night
Finally free
Now it’s just a few days walk and right out of sight

In the city
They will let me dance
and I won’t have to hide
In the city
I can finally live carefree
I bet you in the city
No-one stops to stare
And each passing prayer is just waiting there
In the city
There might be a place for me

[Feda]
We could find a spot
Hidden by a wall
No one else around
Just for me and him
All alone
We could go at night
We could stay up late
He’d lie in my arms
We could plan a life of our own
Even if somebody sees
Well maybe they won’t care
They all have lives
Everything will work out fine
Once we both live there

In the city
People like their homes and know they wanna stay
In the city
There is always more to see
I bet you in the city
Streets are filled with light
Even late at night we’ll be treated right
In the city
I can find the place for me

[Both]
In the city
There’s an airport if you need to get away
In the city
Feeling safe’s a guarantee

[Feda]
I bet you

[Both]
in the city
We can go a lot
To our favourite spot
Where we won’t get caught
In the city
I can find the place for me

In the city

[Feda]
Even in the crowds he’s

[Both]
All I ever see

[Paiman]
In the city
We’ll have

[Both]
So much to discuss

[Feda]
I bet you

[Both]
in the city
Somewhere safe from view
I’ll feel something new
And he’ll feel it too
In the city
We can find the place for us

[Feda]                              [Paiman]
I know in the city               In the city
In the city                         In the city

[Both]
In the city
There will be a place for us
A place for us
